Whistler's Orders

The Canada batteries were in the same place with those which had been erected on the 5th of July, just before Hull had arrived, which had been broken up by Captain Dalliba, under Major [John] Whistler's orders, before Hull's arrival from the 24-pounder battery at the lower end of the town.  Whistler was then in command.

The New York Times chronicled the service of generations of Whistlers.
